Bugs Fixed

  • Important Change: Uninstalling MySQL using the MySQL installer on Windows would delete the my.ini file. The file is no longer deleted. In addition, when a new installation is conducted, any existing configuration file will be renamed to myDATETIME.ini.bak during configuration. (Bug #36493)

  • The server could crash for queries with the following elements: 1. An impossible where in the outermost SELECT; 2. An aggregate in the outermost SELECT; 3. A correlated subquery with a WHERE clause that includes an outer field reference as a top-level WHERE sargable predicate; (Bug #46749)

  • A query containing a subquery in the FROM clause and PROCEDURE ANALYSE() caused a server crash. (Bug #46184)

    References: See also Bug #48293.

  • A Windows Installation using the GUI installer failed with:
